enough votes in florida, virginia, and ohio to carry things over-the-top. they were talking with their get out the vote people, who said they were getting them out to the polls and we think we can carry this off. and suddenly puff. it has to be a bitter disappointment after six long years, the hours put in and the money spent. he dead his best not to show that in his concession speech as he appealed to his supporters to embrace the very best of america. >> we look to our parents, in the final analysis everything depends on the success of our homes. we look to job creators of all kinds, we are counting on you to invest, to hire, to step forward. and we look to democrats and republicans in government at all levels to put the people before the politics. >> reporter: it is unclear at this point whether or not governor romney will remain a leader in the republican party. the president says that he will invite him down to the white house to talk about the issues. either way, though it would appear that governor romney is likely to be the last of his generation to run for the presi
in the battle ground state of florida, but not before many counties saw a record, gigantic lines. and phil keating joins us from tampa, and the numbers. it was crazy yesterday, phil. >> absolutely, reportedly six hour waits at certain locations in miami-dade county outside of the precinct on friday, three and a half hours all day long to stand in line, shuffle forward and finally cost their ballot. the numbers are big despite the fact in 2008 there was early voting on this sunday before election day, this year, there is not. and that's been a point of convention, democrats and democrat leaning groups have called that voting suppression engineered by the republican dominated legislature and governor's office in the state of florida. however, despite those cries, the numbers have been as good as they were back in 2008. take a look at numbers right now. nearly 4 million, this is through friday, nearly 4 million floridians voted early, by early voting or absentee ballot. and the way it breaks down, the most early voters stand in line and cast their ballot, 45% of those people are registered de
carried 28 states last time, he carried 26 or 27 states this time, depending on how florida goes. that means republicans did lose everything else, but got back indiana and also north carolina. so it was not a totally hopeless night for republicans. also, hey, remember the crazy thaddeus mccotter seat in michigan, where thaddeus mccotter screwed up and they had to run this reindeer herder, santa claus impersonator for the seat, a guy whose own brother says he's crazy. that guy won. the shirtless reindeer guy won. so the republicans have him. big picture in the house, thanks mostly to redistricting the republicans were not in danger of losing the house, and they didn't legal cause it, even though the republican majority appears to have shrunk there. and even though they did get the reindeer guy. but in terms of, honestly, of what went well for republicans in this election, that was pretty much it. it is a short list. want to talk about what went well on the other side last night? i'm actually going to pause for a second to give you a chance to hit pause on your dvr in case you want
, virginia and ohio. they feel ok about florida and virginia. but a sign of trouble. jonathan martin is hearing the margins for him in chesterfield county just outside of richmond, where he is doing well, it is not good enough. if he's losing there, it's a sign of trouble in the state. in ohio, romney is worried about the midwest. wisconsin, and ohio, real nervousness. in the obama war room, confidence. exit polls looked good for john kerry. there are jokes about president kerry. but their models are coming in. the vote is coming in how they expected. >> one state declared is indiana, which obama won and it is called for romney. it shows the map is smaller this time, the map is smaller. some of the exit polling looks good, some does not, with what people think of health care and the role of government. people ask me, who should i vote for? what will they do? i have no clue. none of the candidates talked about what they'll do. it goes with what john wrote, about how small the campaign is in what is a huge moment. when you think of what is happening with our debt. trillion-dollar defic

with the exception of north carolina, and yes, florida, we are still waiting for you. after $2 billion on states, only two changed colors. democrats did keep the senate and have actually added to their majority. while the republicans maintain control of the house. still waiting on some of those house races now. the key as the president's people told us did end up being demographics and turnout. latinos continue their embrace of the democrats and the rejection of the republicans. the white share of the vote was 72% which was exactly what plouffe, axelrod and mecino told us it would be. we want to break news here. >> we have mugs. we are excited. i'm sure our viewers are excited. >> on a day of big news, this was breaking. >> this is what we care about. no. we get in to the politics of this, what happened, the demographic break down and quickly say what this means for the country. health care stays. it means paul ryan's budget is essentially irrelevant since they weren't able to get the majority in the senate and maybe more importantly i think latino voters made their voice heard loud and clear to
there is to do and the future that lies ahead. >> at this hour, one state remains undecided. it is florida. still too close to call and nothing to change the outcome of the race. another big victory for democrats last night was in the senate. democrats not only maintain the majority but picked up a handful seats. among the biggest wins, massachusetts, wisconsin, missouri, ina, connecticut and virginia. senate majority leader harry reid just a short time ago called for bipartisanship. >> the way we get things done is to work together. but we need republicans to help us.i thers compromises not a dirty word. >> but we're already seeing statements like this one from senator mitch mcconnell who said last night, quote, now it's time for the president to propose solutionce of passing the republican-controlled house of representatives. perhaps setting the stage gridl republicans maintained solid;[ majority in the next hour we're expecting to hear of house speaker john boehner. right now, joining me, national syndicated talk show host michael smirconish and joe frolic for "the cleveland plain dealer." th
that on various platforms. now, coming up, a look at house races, a debate in the florida 18th congressional district with for the republican congressman allen west and democrat, patrick murphy where representative allen west who currently represents the 22nd district, is now running for the 18th house district. [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2012] [captioning performed by national captioning institute] >> democrat patrick murphy, republican allen west, the square off in a one-hour debate. >> this is a newschannel 5 special presentation. >> good evening, and welcome to the debate between our candidates tonight. they are democrat patrick murphy and republican allen west. thank you for joining us. i will be the moderator. as part of our coverage, joining me to ask questions are two of my colleagues. our format is simple. each will be asked a question and they will have one minute to respond. then a 30-second rebuttal. at the end of the broadcast, they will each have one minute to make closing statements. we will try to get through a lot of topics. the first question will go
the fiscal cliff. we have two guest hosts, george p. bush, son of former florida governor jeb bush, founding partner of st. augustine partners and jared bernstein, former chief economist to vice president biden, also a cnbc contributor and welcome to both of you. great to have you both here today. >> thank you. >> good to be here. >> we've been talking seriously about trying to tackle the fiscal cliff, it's a looming problem. you've seen the market's activity over the last week or so, and first of all i have to ask each of you, do you think we'll go over the fiscal cliff? george we haven't gotten to talk to you for a while. >> i have a bullish sentiment, i look at the rhetoric from speaker boehner late last week and the president's remarks indicate there's wiggle room in terms of a trade that can be made between meaningful entitlement reform and revenue generation. the crux of the issue will lie in terms of where the revenue will be generated, whether it will be in tax increases but this is the first part of the negotiati negotiation, as in any business deal there is posturing but i feel a d
carolina and florida, basically have the two candidates either tied, but obama having a one, two or more point lead, as many as five in some state polls, lead over romney. why the discrepancy between the national survey and the state polls? >> the discrepancy is caused by the tremendous number of negative ads that the obama campaign ran against mitt romney over the course of the last six months. a rising tide lifts all boats, but it doesn't lift them quite as far in the battle ground states as it does elsewhere because of all the negative ads that the obama campaign has run. nevertheless, a lot of those states are incredibly close, there are eight states right now that are within less than 3 points. so, who knows which way those are going to go on tuesday. >> paul: there's another a factor here which is interesting in the polling, which is in these head to head surveys in the swing states, president obama typically can't get above 47, 48%, even if he's leading romney by a couple of points, he can't get rise to get to that 50% level and that gives a lot of people in the romney camp confid
exploit station in florida and places like the eagle ford field. this is a boom fought to those getting money for the leases they are ranting but lower energy costs. it is like a tax cut for america. >>shepard: if we were to become energy independent, it would certainly change the dynamic in the middle east. >> in question about that. energy independence in a global energy market is a tricky thing. energy more secure? no question. you have seen imports of oil dropping in the united states for the last five, six, seven years. so it is a substantial advantage if the united states. the geopolitics change in a variety of ways, we can use the oil and gas to help allies do things we need them to do abroad n japan you say we need you to put the squeeze on iran on nuclear issues but we will make sure you have enough energy because we will export gas and oil. >>shepard: thank you, john. eight years after the death of yasser arafat, there is a curious thing happening. forensic experts today opened up his tomb amid suspicion he was poisoned. if they poisoned him the way they thing, opening up his
, iowa. mitt romney also with a hectic schedule today campaigning in sanford, florida, then traveling to virginia for rallies in lynchburg and fairfax. later he's in columbus, ohio, and wraps up his campaign in manchester, new hampshire. tonight over on c-span we'll have live coverage of both candidates' final campaign rallies. that gets underway this evening at 10:50 eastern. c-span asked reporters from around the country what they'll be watching for tomorrow on election night. here's what a few of them had to say. >> i'm going to be watching the democratic margin in broward, dade and palm beach counties. it is critical for the president that he has very large numbers in those counties. that's where he builds up his lead. in 2008 the president won 14 of 67 counties. so he -- and, obviously, the more populace counties are the ones he won, but he needs to really win big in those counties by several hundred thousand votes. you know, the south florida margin in 2008 was 535,000 votes. and, you know, if he doesn't, if he doesn't do well in south florida, he's going the lose. he's going to
, florida, where they have the republican convention, to charlotte where democrats had their convention, fort bragg, back to charlotte, washington. that's 26 cds. [laughter] but i have this image of lyndon johnson spinning in his grave at the idea that there is a president of the united states that has minimal interaction with congress. and particularly someone of his own party. and when you, let's just forget republicans and let's forget tea party people. forget them. just in his own party, wander around the hill as all of you to around all the time and ask members of the democratic at how much personal interaction you have with the president. and i have, you know, i hate giving political credit for anything, but they had that piece back in may. just pointed out that the president, as of may when that article was written, had not had a single conversation this year with this year weedeater kent conrad, chairman of the senate budget committee, or tom harkin, the chairman of the senate health education labor binge committee. phone or in person this year. now, you can talk about tea party
and arizona and florida out of the business of telling us, and iowa, how we're going to raise hands and produce eggs and how we're going to raise cattle and raise hogs. that's an important piece that as many fight in this campaign to go to have a lot of play in the press but that something was got to hold in the farm bill and that's another reason i want to get it to conference by the end of the year. >> i do hope that the farm bill comes to four, this bill, i hope it's an open robe that the amendments, process can take place to i would anticipate conservatives bring an amendment to split the component from the agriculture component that i don't get the votes for it but once and for all let's at least start to have this debate. severing of foodstamp provision of all the ag policies. since i'm surrounded by kansas, iowa, north dakota, would you gentlemen like to speak as will? >> well, speaking as one who campaigned very strongly in support in, strong support of the proposed bill without apology, i can tell you that the farmers of north dakota like the house bill just fine. not only
